 “OVER THE RAINBOW

Festival of Fine Arts Special Event

Thursday, January 22, 2015 – 7:30 p.m.

Relive and encounter anew the timeless wonder of the music made famous by legendary entertainer Judy Garland in a tribute to her art and legacy, “Over the Rainbow.” In this performance, the remarkable contemporary songstress, Hilary Kole, in collaboration with her ever-popular Big Band, captures the spirit and beauty of “America’s Treasure” in stunning arrangements of such classics as Somewhere Over the Rainbow, The Trolley Song, As Long As He Needs Me, Look for the Silver Lining, and many others made famous by the singer Fred Astaire called “the greatest entertainer that ever lived.”

Hailed by critics as a contemporary “musical marvel” (Rex Reed, NY Observer), Hilary Kole is busily establishing her own place among nationally and internationally known singers as an incomparable talent.

From engagements in New York’s Rainbow Room, the Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and Town Hall to performances with major symphony orchestras and international jazz festivals from Japan to Scotland, Italy, and Montreal, she is fast becoming the singer of choice to headline performances on stages world-wide.

 Come join us in this rare opportunity to celebrate the art of American legend Judy Garland through the artistry of a legend-in-the-making, Hilary Kole.
